Diagnosis of the Bubonic Plague
Buboes. If you have the swollen lymph nodes (buboes) characteristic of bubonic plague, a fluid sample can be taken from them with a needle.
Blood. Yersinia pestis bacteria generally are present in your bloodstream only if you have septicemic plague.
Lungs. To check for pneumonic plague, your doctor will take sputum or fluid from your airways using endoscopy — a thin, flexible tube inserted through your nose or mouth and down your throat.
Treatments for the Bubonic plague
Must be treated within a 24 hour time period
Any person who has had close contact with the patient should be traced, identified, and evaluated.
Contacts of patients with plague may be placed under observation or given preventive antibiotic therapy
depending on the degree and timing of contact.
Why contain it?
bubonic plague bacteria can quickly multiply in the bloodstream
possibly causing septicemic plague
even progress to the lungs causing pneumonic plague
1-17 cases each year
age group: Infants up can get it
Both in male and female but recorded in more men
Live for 2- 6 days
